Welcome to RoZoYo®, a new take on your yoga practice.
As Above, So Below! Movements of the Moon, Sun, and planets influence our activity here on earth. Electro magnetic energy generated in space radiates from all the heavenly bodies affecting conditions on our planet. Think of astronomical high and low tides and sunburns as examples of how we can SEE this!
We breathe it in! Energy from the ethers mixes with the earth's atmosphere and we breathe it into our bodies. Prana, our life force, is created, inhaled and internalized.
One of the most notable is the Vedic system. Jyotishis, Vedic astrologers, used yoga to facilitate individuals navigate the challenges and opportunities presented in their birth charts due to placements of the Sun, Moon and planets in the houses, or sectors, of the chart. The state of and probability of a person's health can be determined by their chart in the Vedic tradition, and yoga was used as a method of remedying physical conditions or tendencies as well as a tool to maximize strengths and opportunities.

- Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are cold and wet, phlegmatic, feminine, Northern in the lower right.
- This is similar to the Vedic system where individual health, diet, and temperament is related to the doshas and symptoms/treatments related to the time of year (and even cycle of hours in the day) as ruled by each planet.
